Bedar, Andalucia and Almeria
Andalucia is home to many typical white villages nesting quietly in the countryside
Bedar - An authentic Spanish village, in existence since the time of the Moors and nestling into the lower slopes of the Filabres mountains, in Andalucia, approximately 15 kms inland from the coastal resorts of Mojacar Playa and Garrucha. As you drive towards this picturesque mountain village, Bedar becomes a focal point sitting astride a pretty hillside setting in a quiet and calm atmosphere and still retaining many of the original cottages which line the narrow streets and little alleyways. All every-day needs are catered for including a Post Office, Chemist, Surgery and a supermarket. Start your day with a walk to the Bakery to buy freshly baked bread or croissants. And don't forget your camera - you will be inspired by shots of beautiful bougainvillea or pink & white almond blossom in January. There are three good restaurants/bars offering a variety of cuisine so no need to go far to enjoy the ambience of this lovely village, but at the same time providing an ideal base from which to explore this little known area of Spain.
Vera - The walled, renaissance town of Vera is one of the most important commercial centres in the region. Originally called Baria, it was located by sea near Villaricos. The Arabs moved it to the hill of Espiritu Santo, but a huge earthquake destroyed it in 1518. Vera as we know it was built in the 16th Century in the urban Renaissance style and later enlarged in 18th Century. The main square, Plaza Mayor, has several noteworthy buildings. The Church de la Encarnación (1520), flanked by 4 great towers, was built as a fort to protect against the frequent Moorish attacks. Inside there are marvelous altarpieces, remarkable in their architecture. To the left of this is the Ayuntamiento (town hall) built in the 16th Century and renovated in the 18th Century. Here, on the ground floor, is the Ethnographic and Archaeological Museum, originally the barracks of civil guard. There are exhibits on history, folklore and local traditions.
Garrucha - is famous for the quality of its large red prawns, only fished in the local waters. Garrucha has a strong fishing industry, its main source of income, with a large port for both commercial and leisure pursuits. Garrucha has a great selection of restaurants and bars with many excellent seafood restaurants found along the seafront serving the fresh catch of the day. They are supplied with fresh fish from nearby port, if you find yourself down on the seafront at dawn you will experience the typically Mediterranean sight of a flotilla of small fishing boats setting out to sea. Later the fishermen host a daily fish auction each afternoon at a quayside fish market. Two buildings of interest in Garrucha are the Parish Church de San Joaquin and the Hermitage de la Virgen del Carmen, the patron saint of Garrucha. Every year on the 16th July the fishermen pass the chapel on their way to the sea in a spirited procession. One of the pleasures of Garrucha is taking a lovely evening stroll around the bay. A palm tree lined promenade framed by white marble balustrades spans the length of the town, almost 2km. There are landscaped areas to sit and relax whilst watching the sunset over the Mediterranean sea and delightful play areas for the children. A stroll along here takes in three successive ports of Garrucha the sports port, fishing port and the commercial port Garrucha is well known for its magnificent, golden sandy beaches, stretching as far as the eye can see, for several kilometres. The beach opposite the town centre is the only blue flag in town beach in Europe. As you continue past Garrucha there are a series of superb beaches.
